There is an insidious hiding evil about “surviving” cancer (I’m still hesitant to call myself a survivor – I’m alive and in remission…but I still have 4 years and 3 months to go before I get to call myself cured). Leukemia and other blood cancers tend to be particularly prone to this evil (especially post […]

Eff Bone Marrow Biopsies. Also; Migraines.

Well, my “6 month” tests have come and gone. I use quotes because it was technically 6 months and a week, but WHO’S COUNTING, AMIRITE!? Ahem. Anyway, I was really hoping to write this post with some kind of update, that my tests were great, and that I was going to start working, etc. etc. […]

The Questionable Power of Prayer

As a cancer-having agnostic, there is a funny bit of verbal annoyance that I have come across. In case you didn’t know, as an agnostic, I don’t prescribe to any official religion, nor do I feel particularly strongly that there is or is not a God and/or afterlife. While I lean towards there not being […]

And So It Begins…began?

I meant to publish this post after getting my Hiccman cather placed. Then, I intended to post it after I woke up the next day. Then I wanted to post it…and things kept moving it back and back and back. Well, let’s get back on Track, shall we? I’ll start from the¬†beginning. Hiccman Catheter Placement […]

Scary Stuff Un-Related to Halloween

Right, so, I mentioned scary, heavy topics to discuss. Well, time to discuss them. But first, for those of you reading this from the East coast, I hope that everybody is safe. So far, I’ve dropped power for about 10 minutes, and lost internet for another 20 minutes or so. All told, I’m getting off […]

Really Long Day at MSKCC

I’m Back!

After quite the hiatus, I’m back, and ready to update everybody on all the things. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Recovering From Round 2 of Consolidation I’ve been laying low since getting out of the hospital from round 2. This consolidation seemed to take a bit more out of me than previous rounds. […]

Good news! Well…maybe not good. Not bad, though. Ok, so just news, I guess?

After waiting what has seemed like essentially forever, I’ve finally got some actual news. Decisions are being made, things are proceeding, and unfortunately, my days of¬†wanton rare meat eating come to a temporary close. Quick Aside – Just hit 12,000 views. Pretty Effing cool. Thanks to everyone out there that’s sharing my links, it is […]

Can a guy catch a break sometime? Maybe?

So after my posts on Wednesday, I ended up going to my parents’ house for some dinner, and a game of Pandemic. Everything went fine, the food was good, and we actually managed to beat Pandemic (on the easiest setting, though). I got up from the table, and my right leg was feeling…odd. Painful, but […]

Highlighting Yet Another Hero

As time goes on, I’ve come to realize that my family and friends comprise a pretty special group of people. With very few exceptions, people have gone above and beyond to try to do something to help me, or to let me know that I have their love and support, and that I’m in their […]
